Thermage vs. Neck Lift

You may have somehow gotten through life with limited forehead lines, crow’s feet, and creases around the mouth area, but your aging neck may still reveal your true age. Patients often ask about their cosmetic options in improving their neck that has slackened or lost definition over the years. These patients can either opt for a neck lift orThermage vs. Neck Lift Thermage to refine wrinkly neck skin texture.

A neck lift will benefit you the most if you have moderate to extreme sagging skin in the neck area. The procedure involves trimming away excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles that have slackened over time. In some cases, liposuction may also be combined with surgery if extra fat is a concern.

Non-invasive skin-tightening treatments such as Thermage work best if you have minimal skin laxity in the neck. Thermage works by delivering radiofrequency energy into the skin. This energy encourages the body to increase collagen (a structural protein that is responsible for skin tautness) production. A single Thermage treatment is often enough to obtain desired outcomes.

A mild sedative is required during the Thermage treatment. Discomfort associated with the procedure is reportedly similar to a mild pinching sensation.

Combination therapy

Although there’s no doubt about the positive results you’ll get from either surgery or Thermage, combining both can achieve total neck rejuvenation.
